with republicans. >> he's pretty moderate republican. in new jersey, chris christie is the republican governor of new jersey. i assume geraldo would have a shot. >> i think he would. there's a lot of hispanics in northern new jersey. as someone who has always advocated to have more candidates, i would welcome his participation. i think he would bring flair to a race we thought would be ho-hum. there's a lot happening between frank lautenberg and cory booker. you have chris christie with a popularity in the 70s. i also reached out to the rnc and they have reached out to geraldo rivera's camp and would be welcome to help him in any way that they would help any other candidate. they have reached out and they think that he's seriously considering it. >> it s it appropriate for cory booker to say that he's interested in the seat even before frank lautenberg said whether he's going to seek re-election? >> he's truly someone that i admire and would love to see continue the senate but cory booker has to see what his future plans are. he's been outstanding mayor of newark. he's a great public citizen.
